If you are awarded a motor vehicle in a divorce, be sure to take care of the title.
If the title to the vehicle is solely in your name, you do not need to take further action.
If the title to the vehicle is in the other party’s name, the title must be transferred. You can do this by signing your name as “Buyer” in the transfer section of the title, and the other party signing their name as “Seller.”
If the title to the vehicle is in both parties’ names, the title must be transferred as well. You can do this by signing your name as “Buyer,” and both parties signing their names as “Sellers.”
If the title is missing, you may apply for a duplicate title from Driver and Vehicle Services through this link: http://www.dmv.org/mn-minnesota/replacing-a-lost-title.php.
